Developing Quality through Measuring Usability--The UTUM Test Package

Jeff Winter, Kari Ronkko, Marten Ahlberg, Mark Hinely, Mats Hellman
2007 Fifth International Workshop on Software Quality (WoSQ'07: ICSE Workshops 2007)  
It is developed for measuring user experience, which is seen as a more encompassing term than usability.  ...  It shows usability through the use of metrics, for efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction, supported by qualitative judgements made by a test leader/usability expert.  ...  The UTUM test package measures the user experience quickly and flexibly, and in so doing measures aspects of quality in use.  ...

Reporting user experience through usability within the telecommunications industry

Kari Rönkkö, Jeff Winter, Mats Hellman
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 international workshop on Cooperative and human aspects of software engineering - CHASE '08  
In some software development contexts, understanding 'who else' to report usability results to and how this must be done has a larger impact on the usability of products, in the long run, than reporting  ...  Our desire to achieve highest leverage from performed usability work made us realize that we need to take advantage of existing usability test reporting as a first step in introducing more of user experience  ...  An existing influence of use-orientation in the company is through an usability test package called UTUM (UIQ Technology Usability Metrics) [17] which is in everyday use within the company.  ...

Examining Correlations in Usability Data to Effectivize Usability Testing

Jeff Winter, Mark Hinely
2012 e-Informatica Software Engineering Journal  
We find that it is not possible to measure usability through the use of one metric, but that it may be possible to gain indications of usability problems on the basis of an analysis of time taken to perform  ...  Therefore, the data from the testing is analysed to see whether it is possible to measure usability on the basis of one single metric, and whether it is possible to judge usability problems on the basis  ...  This work was partly funded by The Knowledge Foundation in Sweden under a research grant for the software development project "Blekinge -Engineering Software Qualities", www.bth.se/besq.  ...
